Pagoda party cut short by a swing of the cleaver

A dance at a Battambang pagoda on Wednesday took the wrong kind of twist after an argument spun out of control. Two men at the dance squabbled with a villager and left the party in huff.

The vengeful men returned with a meat cleaver and hacked at the villager’s head, leaving guests to flee in terror.

The badly injured victim was taken to hospital and the suspects were arrested the next day. The court charged the men on Friday. Rasmei Kampuchea
